Law Offices of William E. Scannell

Bankruptcy DOES NOT ruin your credit forever! In fact, in most cases you can get a credit card and/or a car loan within six months of completing your bankruptcy, and a mortgage approximately 24 months after your bankruptcy discharge. You can buy another home only 24 months after you file chapter 7 bankruptcy!

Debt consolidation companies are almost always a SCAM.  They charge you money and you do not get out of debt.  If you are paying one of them STOP and call us today.

All they want to get is your money while they learn at your risk and expense. Attorney William Scannell has practiced Bankruptcy Law for his entire professional career.
